About the Book

In the mid-1930s, a brave young theological student refused to preach Nazi doctrine and was denied ordination in the German Lutheran church. He struggled to resist the Nazi takeover of the church, but, with his life in danger, was ordered out of the country by his bishop. He fled to the United States, where, through the FBI, he contacted author Kressmann Taylor so she could tell his story.

Day of No Return is Kressmann Taylor’s 1942 account of that true story, fictionalized to deceive the Nazis and protect “Karl Hoffman” and his family still in Germany. Now his subsequent life and true identity, which remained secret for the rest of her life, are at last revealed in this dramatic new edition.
